Hello! This is my last Stamp Review Crew hop for 2020. There’s another hop in a couple of weeks, but it’s not a stamp set I added to my collection in time.
Today we’re sharing projects made using the Gnome for the Holidays stamp set – found in the Aug-Dec 2020 Mini Catalogue. You can see the main blog post for this hop by clicking here.
This stamp set was love at first sight when I saw it in the catalogue! It’s been fun to add those sweet little gnomes to holiday cards. The sentiments from this set work well with other stamp sets too, making it a versatile option for all your Christmas crafting needs.
My card today is a Vellum Panel card. You can see Jennifer McGuire’s tutorial video here. I love vellum and use it often to soften up a busy DSP, but I’ve never used it as the card base!
Vellum on its own isn’t strong enough as a card base, so this design uses Heartwarming Hugs DSP on the back layer and part of a piece of cardstock on the front, so a cute peek-a-boo effect.
The Gnome for the Holidays stamp set is great for creating a scene. I stamped the treehouse and then cut it out using a die from the Hippo & Friends Dies. The gnomes were stamped on Whisper White and fussy cut. All of the pretty pictures were brought to life with Stampin’ Blends. How vibrant are those colours!!!
The embossing for this card is Tasteful Textures 3D embossing folder cut at an angle.
Is this a card style that you’ve tried? Feel like it might work for some of your festive crafting?
This stamp set has so much to offer and so many different styles you can use. One of my favourite cards this year was made using this set –
There’s plenty more inspiration on this hop. Next up is Mike Funke in the US with a great gnomey project….
Have a great week!
